Coral is the third largest bookmaker in the UK, complimenting parent company Gala's growing dominance in the overall casino market. The Coral Live Casino is yet another off-shoot of the popular brand, taking all of Coral's best high street qualities and enhancing them with HD video feeds, generous rewards and a lively casino feel.
Powered by Playtech's elite software, Coral Live Casino touts stellar graphics and memorable gameplay for players to enjoy.
Coral Live Casino can be played on any PC or Mac, with the browser-based Instant Play function making it easy to log on from any machine running Flash. Pop up windows are used throughout to ensure that the screen is not dominated by the game, making it easy to multitask whilst playing. The Coral Live Casino uses HD cameras to ensure users are presented with a highly immersive playing experience, with a soft focus used to draw attention to the dealer rather than the fixtures of the surrounding casino. The only drawback is that there are no options to toggle the resolution of the video, only to switch between the full camera mode and a smaller video window that combines with an animated graphic.
There's also a downloadable version of the entire Coral casino with a special Live Dealers tab, although this is only available to PC users at present. A dedicated Live Dealer mobile app is also available for iOS users. Overall, the site is extremely responsive, with a decent internet connection ensuring that the video stream is not affected by lags.
The game portal is quick to load, with waiting times generally no more than 30 seconds. Players can choose their table by stake, game and dealer, although there is a slight issue with the dealer selection interface - users are asked to choose their dealer at the main menu, but are then required to choose again at a later stage.
Other than this slight hitch, the Coral Live Casino is an incredibly friendly site to use, with rolling menu bars, large buttons and brightly coloured playing surfaces welcoming players into the game. Registered users can choose between a full screen video feed or a more innovative miniature version with animated features, making it easy to find the most comfortable settings.
Coral Live Casino offers four game types via its live service - Blackjack, Texas Hold‘em, Baccarat and Roulette – each of which has a number of different variations. Baccarat, for example, can be played as normal, whilst the more experienced players can choose from Mini, In-Play, Progressive and VIP. Roulette, on the other hand, has four options; Regular, French, Exclusive and Dual. Blackjack is more limited with two options, giving players the chance to pick between Capped and Unlimited Stakes - perfect for beginners and high rollers alike.
Coral Live Casino also extends its generous promotion and reward scheme to the Live Casino, with cash bonuses on offer including a first deposit matching scheme and a first table welcome bonus.
Depositing money into the Coral Live Casino is a relatively simple task, and can be done using the majority of major credit cards, as well as a number of eWallets including PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, Eco, ClickPay Instant Banking and Click & Buy. There is also the option to use vouchers such as Ukash and Paysafe. All of these options have a minimum despot of £5, and no charges are levied against them.
Overall, the Coral Live Casino makes for an enjoyable experience, with high quality video, HD animations and plenty of table choice creating a real life casino experience at home.
